This may not be the best news to hear before the start of a holiday weekend.

Rio Stadium 12 movie theater in Rio Grande closed this past Thursday due to a change in ownership.

A Facebook post on the theater's page revealed that it will remain closed for one to two months.

"We understand that this is incredibly short notice," said the post. "Thank you for the many wonderful years and we hope to have more in the future."

Rather sad and abrupt news but with new ownership usually comes new and improved renovations so keep your fingers crossed that it is in all of our best benefits!

Good luck Rio Stadium 12 -- we are rooting for you!
